Revlon Photoready Airbrush Review: Kat’s Opinion

image

I recently purchased Revlon’s Photoready Airbrush foundation in 030 Nude. Before I tell you what I think of it, let me say that Revlon is one of my favorite cosmetic brands, sometimes even over high end brands.

That being said, not only am I disappointed in this foundation, I am horrified as well!

The first time I tried to use it, I had used a new moisturizer and primer at the beginning of my routine. I was waiting for my primer to dry, anxiously waiting to try this intriguing new product. I loved the concept of it and couldn’t wait for my face to be magically transformed into a perfect canvas.

When my primer was ready, I took the lid off the foundation. The pump thing is odd and I noted that it was difficult to press. It was so difficult that, when I finally managed to press hard enough, it was to hard and a whole bunch of product shot out onto the back of my hand.

I dont know how to describe the consistency other than very foamy… as soon as it comes out of the can it expands like a very watery,  bubbly mousse. It then quickly started to dissipate,  the air coming out of the product I guess. This left a very thin liquid. Ok, I can deal with that. I soon discovered that a little goes a long way.

After finishing my makeup routine, I realized I had been noticing a really disgusting smell. I can not describe the smell other than it was gross, almost like spoiled milk mixed with a dirty diaper????

I was in a rush to get Teenage Boys to practice, so we rushed out the door. The whole drive there and back I was tortured with the stench of my FACE! Trying to be logical, I thought maybe the new moisturizer,  primer,  and foundation might have had some weird chemical reaction with each other.

I promptly removed all makeup and then washed my face. Didn’t think about it for the rest of the day.

Next day: I decided to put the same foundation on, but this time I would put it directly onto my freshly washed face.
When I pulled the cap off the can, this is what I saw:

Gross, huh. I went ahead and pumped some out, dabbing it onto my forehead. Guess what. The stench was this foundation, even stronger than before.

This was by far the WORST foundation experience I have ever had. Revlon… why??? I’m so sad to have to return this product after being so excited about it.  😦

Have any of you tried the Photoready Airbrush foundation? If so, did you have the same problem? Did I just get a bad batch?

Thank you for reading as always, Kat


Revlon’s Nearly Naked: Kat’s First Impression

So. I just did a YouTube video of my first impression: Revlon’s Nearly Naked foundation! However, I can not get it to upload onto my Asus tablet 😦 All the photos from my camera downloaded, but I guess the videos aren’t compatible or something. I was really disappointed because one of the reasons I bought this specific tablet was to download photos and videos. Maybe there is an app I can download or something for the videos. Sigh.
Anyway, the foundation! I got it in the shade “Nude” #030. My first impression was pretty good! I think I’m going to really like it a lot. I usually don’t do well when picking out drug store foundation and have to return them most of the time to try a different color. I think I got it right on the money this time! And speaking of money, this foundation doesn’t take much of it which is always a plus. It was $9.99 at my local Walgreens and there was also a BOGO 50% off sale for Revlon products!

Have you tried this foundation yet? Have you used the Urban Decay Naked foundation? I haven’t but I would like to know how they compare with each other. Kat

I just got home from a Dr. Appointment and Walgreens. While picking up my scripts, I noticed the Nearly Naked display. I chose the color “Nude”.
It cost $9.99 but I was able to use my rewards points on it! Also, all Revlon products were BOGO half off!!! I am going to do a first impression review on my YouTube channel. My YouTube user name is also Addercatter. Have you tried this yet? What do you think? Kat
